Did Joe Budden Really Leave ‘Everyday Struggle’?

So, as a longtime Joe Budden fan, I can’t say that I’m surprised, son. I mean, keeping it a buck, I’m shocked that his tenure on Everyday Struggle lasted this long, man. In any case, what is the show going to do without him, fam? Shit, he was basically the reason why anyone paid attention to Complex‘s show, bruh. All I know is, I’m going to miss his various kerfuffles and beefs with artists all around the industry.

Ok, for those who are unaware, Budden decided to leave the show he co-founded. Now, I’m not sure about all of the details (because I haven’t listened to the latest Joe Budden Podcast episode yet), but it appears that it all came down to money, son. Apparently, Budden and Complex couldn’t reach an agreement and Joey chose to walk. All in all, fans of the show knew something was up because Budden missed a couple of episodes in a row.

Now, during his absence, Complex tried to play it off like Budden was missing shows because of his newborn child with Cyn Santana. However; Joey took to Twitter and quickly refuted those claims, saying that he “knows [his] worth” and that “internal chaos” was responsible. All I can say is, Everyday Struggle is going to struggle everyday without Budden. Side bar, does everyone see what I did there? Man, I really make myself laugh, fam.

Anyway, Joe had ALL of the hot takes on the show and HE’S the one who kept eyes on the program. Look, how many artists did he piss off in the process, bruh? Shit, Migos and Lil Yachty JUST released a diss track because of Joey’s comments. I guess after all of their bickering, they thought this was the best way to get back at Joe. Listen, for someone who’s supposed to be “irrelevant,” he sure has a lot of people talking, son. On the real, irrelevant folks don’t cause this much traffic, man. It just is what it is, fam.

In the end, this probably won’t have much of an impact on Budden. Ultimately, I think Complex is taking an L with this move, bruh. By and by, I don’t think the show is going to end, but it damn sure won’t be as entertaining, son. At the end of the day, people like me will still be around whenever Joe decides to resurface with a new endeavor. In addition, the Joe Budden Podcast is still moving in these streets, so I’m sure he’ll be fine, man. Keeping it a buck, I’m just here for the fuckery, fam. That is all. LC out.

What The F*ck Is Happening In Libya?!

Man, what the fuck is going on right now, son?! Like, my eyes and ears MUST be deceiving me, fam! Look, there can’t be any possible way that slavery still exists, right? Right?! Listen, at this point, I’m not going to pretend like I know all of the particulars about this issue. However; all I know is, Africans are being sold in Libya right now. Yes, that’s right, bruh. In 2017, refugees and migrants are being sold, people. All in all, I don’t even know what to say or do, folks.

Ok, like I said in the first paragraph, I’m not even going to pretend like I’m some expert on the subject. I’ve read a bunch of articles about what’s going on and I can’t make heads or tails of it, son. Now, from what I’ve seen, a number of people trace the problem to Muammar Gaddafi, Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama. Basically, as the theory goes, by taking Gaddafi out of power, it caused a vacuum that led to the rise of human trafficking. Keeping it a buck, this idea makes sense, but I’m not going to act like I have an innate knowledge of the climate over there.

Moving on, due to issues like war and poverty, a lot of refugees are leaving countries like Nigeria, Sudan and Senegal. For them, the goal is to make it to Europe and seek a better life. However; instead of freedom, they’re being captured and sold to the lowest bidder. Like, some people are being sold for as low as $400, son! Shit, I can’t even make this shit up, man! It’s literally some of the wildest shit I’ve ever heard, fam! I truly, truly, truly can’t believe this is all real, bruh!

Now, for one second, I want to turn my attention to Donald Trump. Look, this dude still doesn’t understand that his words have weight in the real world. Listen, his Twitter jabs aren’t some game that can just be ignored, son. On the real, they have actual implications, man. Ok, we all know about his crusade against the media. Just the other day, he went on a tirade about CNN International. Per usual, he called them “fake news” and a bunch of other random shit.

Fast forward to today, some Libyan news outlets are using Trump’s words to dispute CNN’s reporting of the slave trade in Libya. That’s fucking dangerous, fam! My God, this isn’t a joke, bruh! This clown’s words are having a DIRECT influence on how a country is reporting about MASSIVE human rights violations! I… I just don’t know what to say, bruh. My mind literally can’t comprehend what’s happening in our world today. My sense of understanding has been completely shot, folks.

In the end, what do we do about this? Seriously, what can we do to put an end to this travesty? Real talk, if anyone has insight on how we can help, please let us know. Ultimately, there’s no way this shit can continue to occur, son. NO human being deserves this shit, man! Plain and simple. By and by, the time for this to end is NOW, fam. That is all. LC out.

LeVar Burton Is NOT LaVar Ball!

So, I’m going to be honest, son. A lot of times, I don’t know who’s stupider, man: Donald Trump or his supporters. Like, I’ve never seen a group of people more allergic to facts and information, fam. With that being said, this LaVar Ball situation ranks high on the fuckery scale, bruh. Keeping it a buck, it’s not even because of the feud between Ball and Trump. All in all, I need to eviscerate these fucktards for confusing Ball and the legendary LeVar Burton.

Ok, for those who’ve had better things to do, let me recap this entire fiasco. First, things began when LiAngelo Ball and company stole some shit in China. Now, there’s no need to revisit that entire story because I’ve already wrote about it, son. Next, Trump tweeted some shit about getting the UCLA players released. From there, the teammates were allowed to leave the country and Trump came looking for credit. LaVar basically gave 45 the middle finger and they’ve been at a war of words ever since. Side bar, the fucking President is arguing with a basketball dad on Twitter. Just let that sink in, folks.

In any case, since they never want to be left out of the tomfoolery, Trump supporters decided to come to their hero’s aid. Now, here’s where the problems arise, man: they set their crosshairs on the wrong individual! Essentially, over the last few days, they’ve been attacking LeVar Burton on social media. Look, Burton ain’t got shit to do with this, fam! This dude gave us Roots, Reading Rainbow and Star Trek: The Next Generation! Have some fucking respect, people! Shit, I swear I’ve NEVER seen a dumber group of carpetbaggers in my whole life, bruh! They just don’t give a flying fuck about verifiable knowledge, son!

In the end, I don’t even know why I’m surprised, man. Intelligence is simply NOT the calling card of these folks, fam. Ultimately, we need to protect LeVar Burton at all costs, bruh. On the real, that man has dropped too many gems to be disrespected in this manner. By and by, viva la Kunta Kinte! LC out.

Gabby Douglas Played Herself

So, back in 2016, I wrote a post coming to Gabby Douglas‘ defense. At that particular time, she was unfairly criticized for a variety of ridiculous reasons. Black people made fun of her hair and White people questioned her patriotism. All in all, that’s a lot to deal with for someone who only recently reached drinking age, son. Now, while I stand by everything I previously said, I must admit that Douglas just played herself, man. All I can say is, victim-blaming doesn’t look good on anyone, fam.

Ok, for those who missed it, Douglas recently said some fuckity-fuck shit on Twitter. Needless to say, she got flambéed for it. Now, everything transpired after her Olympic teammate, Aly Raisman, made a statement about men not having the right to sexually abuse women. She stated that regardless of the nature of a woman’s clothes, men aren’t entitled to their bodies. Look, that should be common knowledge now, right? Well, not according to Douglas. Instead of backing up her squad leader, Douglas said that women should “dress modestly,” “be classy” and stay away from the “wrong crowd.” Yeah, she really went there, bruh.

Now, at this point, I shouldn’t have to explain to anyone what’s wrong with Douglas’ logic. Look, we’re living in a time when women are openly fighting for their respect. With that being said, no man has the right to violate a woman’s body or her personal space. If she isn’t with the shits, then the shit doesn’t go down, son. Frankly, it’s really that simple, man. On the real, I truly don’t understand women who put the onus on other women instead of the abusers. Shit, just because I like a woman’s cleavage doesn’t mean I can just go ahead and grab a boob, fam.

In the end, Douglas can save her apology, bruh. Real talk, people only repent after they get roasted for saying some dumb shit. Ultimately, I believe that Douglas believes everything she originally said. She’s only backsliding because everyone called her out for it. By and by, some women suffer from the same symptoms as some Black people: they don’t even realize how much they’ve been brainwashed. *Sigh* LC out.

Donald Trump Just Confused Two Mass Shootings

So, when I woke up this morning, I planned on writing about the latest shooting in California. I mean, my plan was to talk about the fuckery that Kevin Janson Neal inflicted on Tehama County. Now, I’m still going to speak about this tragedy, but I’d be remiss if I didn’t comment on Donald Trump‘s response to the tragedy. Basically, y’alls President confused one mass shooting with another one, son. Worse yet, he didn’t even bother to change the template of his tweet before he sent it out.

Ok, before I continue, let me talk about the matter at hand, man. Now, for those who missed it, just yesterday, Kevin Neal opened fire on a myriad of people. Apparently, he was at odds with his neighbors and decided to kill them. From there, he drove around town, in stolen cars, and fired on unsuspecting folks. Ultimately, he ended up at an elementary school and tried to wreak havoc, fam. All in all, in the aftermath of his attack, four people were dead and another ten were injured. Frankly, if the school faculty didn’t react quicker, there could’ve been more bloodshed, fam.

Now, it goes without saying that this situation is terrible, bruh. Luckily, none of the children were killed, but one was hurt during the chaos. With that being said, my condolences to everyone who was affected by this horror. On the real, it’s insane that this was the third mass shooting in under two months, son. First, it was Las Vegas and then it was Texas. At this point, I’m not even sure of what needs to be done here, man. Like, none of the community’s suggestions are even entertained by our elected officials, fam. Honestly, people just keep on dying, folks.

Moving on, on its own, the shooting would’ve been bad enough, son. However; Trump found a way to make it worse by hitting his Twitter account. So, in the wake of the incident, Trump tweeted out “May God be with the people of Sutherland Springs, Texas. The FBI and Law Enforcement has arrived.” Now, if anyone is paying attention, they’d know that he just referenced the wrong shooting. Even worse, he copied and pasted a nearly identical message that he sent when the real Texas shooting happened. Look, this man didn’t even have the wherewithal or the respect to get the place right, man! Like, I’m at a fucking loss for words, fam!

Look, his reaction is fucked up on multiple levels, bruh. First, we’ve gotten to a point where mass shootings are the norm now. As a nation, we’ve become so desensitized to this kind of violence that all we offer victims are “thoughts and prayers.” Because of this, the fucking President thought it was okay to have a mass shooting tweet template. Next, it takes a special kind of asshole to not even bother getting the location right. Real talk, no Trump apologist can make this faux pas okay, son. This man clearly doesn’t give a flying fuck about the American people!

In the end, I have nothing else to say here, man. Ultimately, I don’t hate many people, but Donald Trump is ABSOLUTELY on that list, fam! He is, without question, one of the worst things to ever happen to this nation, bruh. By and by, as long as he’s in control, we’re doomed, folks. There’s no other way to cut it or slice it, people. That is all. LC out.

Get ESPN The F*ck Outta Here!

So, let me get straight to it, son. ESPN can eat a massive dick, son. I mean, they’re definitely showing the world their true colors, man. I guess, in their eyes, the First Amendment means nothing, fam. Like, free speech must be some imaginary concept, bruh. Shit, from the way things have played out, SportsCenter co-host Jemele Hill clearly isn’t entitled to voicing her opinion. All I know is, Hill needs to take her talents to somewhere she’ll be properly appreciated. All in all, ESPN is NOT the place, folks.

Now, for those who missed all of the fuckery, let me give a brief rundown. The nonsense started when Hill spoke out against Donald Trump on Twitter. She correctly called Trump a White Supremacist and blamed him for the rise of bigotry in this country. Listen, if anyone thinks she was off base, just remember Trump’s response to Charlottesville. Despite the fact that supremacists killed Heather Heyer, he still said that there were “fine people” on all sides. Look, if that ain’t sucking up to racists than I don’t know what is, son.

In any case, because of her statements, Hill became a political target. Trump’s entire administration tried to make her a punching bag in an effort to get her fired. Now, since ESPN is a bunch of bitches, they released a statement condemning Hill’s tweets. With that being said, she was effectively put on warning. However; since Hill is a real one, she refused to be silenced by the powers that be.

Moving on, here’s where the tomfoolery came to a head, man. So, Jerry Jones decided to be a typical White dude in power and threaten his Dallas Cowboys players. According to him, if any man kneels for the National Anthem, then they won’t play. Keep in mind, just the other week, this clowncake kneeled with the players before a game. Now, he’s trying to pull rank by putting pressure on his employees. Look, all I want to know is, when did Jerry Jones become a beacon of moral authority? Fam, ain’t that the same man that took these pictures? Ok, yeah, I thought so, bruh.

Anyway, in the wake of Jones’ hypocrisy, Hill suggested that people should boycott Cowboys advertisers. Frankly, that move would be a real way to affect the status quo. By and by, for her troubles, ESPN suspended Hill for two weeks for violating their social media policy. Basically, this was their way of shutting her up for speaking against their corporate interests. Listen, we all know how the game goes, son. Anytime a Black person speaks up, the people in control need to assert their dominance. Keeping it a buck, Hill became another victim of the need to maintain “order.”

In the end, ESPN is proving that they only want a certain type of Blackness. They want to exploit our swag but don’t give a fuck about our pain. Now, I know Hill worked tirelessly to succeed, but I hope she learned a valuable lesson here: these corporations want us to be caricatures. They want us to be docile servants who should be thankful for our positions. Ultimately, fuck ESPN and all other organizations who profit from our talents but remain silent about our anguish. LC out.

P.S. Michael Smith is a G for the way he’s standing up for his co-host. Salute, brother. That is all.

Stop Tweeting, Kevin Durant

Ok, all jokes aside, where are Kevin Durant‘s friends, son? I mean, no one told him that his social media behavior has been corny as shit, man? Look, I know I’ve given him a hard time for his Golden State Warriors move, but I never thought he’d do something so lame, fam. All in all, KD just needs to accept the fact that most people don’t accept his decision. At this point, he’s an NBA champion now. Why does he still care what people think?

Now, for those who missed it, KD got caught doing some hoe shit last week. So, apparently, this dude has been using secret Twitter and Instagram accounts to argue with people hating on him. He got caught after accidentally posting a response from his REAL Twitter account. Look, in the aforementioned message, he spoke about himself in the third person, shitted on his former coach Billy Donovan AND threw shots at the entire Oklahoma City Thunder organization. In his eyes, it was just him and Russell Westbrook. To be fair, he wasn’t wrong about that part.

In any case, when he was confronted about his actions during a fireside chat at TechCrunch Disrupt, he owned up to his corniness. Now, before I continue, let me be clear about something. KD is EASILY one of the top 3 players in the game. In addition, I never faulted him for leaving OKC. Frankly, he’s only getting hate for going to a team that beat him. To make matters worse, he’s handled the situation TERRIBLY since switching teams. Look, this dude is a champion and a Finals MVP now. By and by, our opinions shouldn’t even matter to him. Keeping it a buck, people will never like his decision, fam. He just needs to focus on winning and move the fuck on, bruh.

In the end, @quiresultan on IG is not going to make us like Kevin Durant. So, he just needs to leave the secret accounts alone and go ball out. Ultimately, his third person defense ranks high on the all-time loser list, son. Shit, he’s winning now, which is what he says he’s always wanted. Nothing else should even matter, man. Just let it go, KD. LC out.
